“Aps400 diaphram problems”

Written on: 08/01/2012

I bought two aps400 air pumps for my 90gallon tank on the promise of it being quiet with new long lasting diaphrams. It sounded just what i needed. Wrong!! ok it was very quiet when new but within a couple of months the rubbers split first on one then the other followed shortly after. I was spending more time in the shop i bought them from and fair enough the man in the fish shop had them replaced no problem but it was the inconvenience of it all. Eventually i decided to write to tetra to see… Read Full Review

Same problem as everybody else. Diaphragm goes after about 4-6 weeks. Always in the same place on the magnet side. Never again. Buying a different one ASAP… Read Full Review

“I bought 2 of these for an 8x2x2 tank. ”

Written on: 10/04/2010

I bought 2 of these for an 8x2x2 tank.

I was very careful - no restrictions, air lines in a ring to allow excess air to circlate. I have replaced 1 pump under warranty and am on my fourth set of diaphrams. They last 1-2 months and are about £8/set if you can get them

When new it is very quiet. As the components wear it gets noisier and noisier. When the diaghrams are getting old it is very loud indeed. To be honest, this was a complete waste of time and money… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2009 by albalco (1 review written)

I always went for Tetra products, so when I made a big pond in the garden, I went for the Tetratec APS400, as I needed power, which I got it worked very well for 2 weeks then the diaphragms got torn, the problem is that you have to buy the whole kit, i.e. paying for things you don't need. I have to change the diaphragms every couple of weeks as they don't last. Also now the outlet were you jion the air pipe broke from the housing, how, no idea it is in a fixed place and cannot get knocked… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/06/2009

The Tetratec APS 400 Air Pump is very noisey, despite being sold as a quiet air pump. It only worked for about a month before the diaphragm gave up - I then couldn't get spares as they were out of stock at the supplier for 3 months. arg. I wouldn't recommend this pump - it is expensive but largely rubbish… Read Full Review
